International Rug Hooking Day

In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of TIGHR’s (The International Guild of Handhooking Rugmakers) founding and to promote rughooking, rug punch, proggy, and braiding using these techniques in traditional to contemporary interpretations we have declared DECEMBER 4, 2014 the International Hook-In Day.

Rug Hooking Magazine has invited people to post pictures to their facebook page as well, so there is lots to see there.

Due to many conflicts, I was unable to host anyone here in the studio today. But if you click on the link above, you can see what other rughookers are doing around the world.

My students were here on Monday and here is a recently-finished piece that will be on full display during the festive season.  Great job Shania!



On my frame, some little "gifties" that can't be shared or the surprises will be ruined.
Happy hook-in day to everyone. Next year, I will hopefully plan something around the date.
